Muse, La Roux and veteran rocker Jeff Beck have all taken home Grammys in Los Angeles, while Lady Gaga was hatched out of an egg for one of a number of memorable live performances at the ceremony.
Muse won Best Rock Album at the prestigious American music event, alongside fellow Brits La Roux who won for Best Electronic/Dance album and legendary guitarist Jeff Beck who took home two awards for Best Pop Instrumental and Best Rock Instrumental.
Justin Bieber had been hotly tipped to do well at this year's ceremony but the 16-year-old pop sensation left empty handed. Instead Best New Artist went to jazz bassist and singer Esperanza Spalding.
Lady Gaga won Best Female Pop Performance for Bad Romance and Album of the Year went to Arcade Fire for The Suburbs.
Sir Paul McCartney scooped his first solo Grammy for 39 years for Solo Rock Vocal Performance for Helter Skelter.
Sir Paul revealed he only learned of his win when he received a text while partying. He had been celebrating at the Baftas in London, following his appearance at the Royal Opera House to hand over the prize for best original music.
"Even though I couldn't be there this year it was extremely exciting to get the news late at night - we all went wild," he said.
Florence Welch from Florence And The Machine helped open the ceremony joining Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson to perform an Aretha Franklin medley.
Katy Perry set the mood for Valentine's Day with her rendition of Not Like The Movies. Watched by husband Russell Brand, the singer was elevated into the air on a special love seat whilst footage from the couple's wedding ceremony was projected behind her.
